Will tackling its mainstream media help Peru successfully advocate for LGBTI equality?

Will tackling its mainstream media help Peru successfully advocate for LGBTI equality?
- Contrary to popular belief, LGBTI people remain discriminated against in Peru, which has a total population of more than 32 million and of which an estimated 11 million lives in its capital, Lima.
In the face of a strong anti-LGBTI political will that continues to perpetuate hate crimes committed against LGBTI people, I met Peruvian LGBTI activist Gabriel de la Cruz, who launched a new organization yesterday (28 June) to advocate for equality through the country’s media channels.
But the ultimate question has to be: why through media, and how will this new strategy pan out for the Peruvian LGBTI community?
